Scott Walker wants everyone to “Believe in Wisconsin Again.”
Really, he does.
In fact, Scott Walker believes in Wisconsin so much that after eliminating 90 county housekeeping jobs right before Thanksgiving, he outsourced cleaning services for the Milwaukee County Courthouse to Mid-American Cleaning Contractors, a company based out of Columbus, Ohio. Walker’s no stranger to outsourcing, as he previously outsourced hotel accommodations during a tour around Wisconsin, in addition to outsourcing the design of his gubernatorial campaign’s website to yet another company based out of Ohio.
See, Scott Walker believes in Wisconsin; he just believes in stimulating the economy of Ohio even more.
Speaking of the outsourcing of the county housekeeping jobs to a company based out of Ohio, I can’t help but wonder if that’s the outcome Supervisor Pat Jursik had in mind when she voted to eliminate the 90 county housekeeping positions Scott Walker just outsourced.
Ed. Note: It turns out the company that won the Courthouse cleaning job is actually a local company, Mid American Building Services, based out of West Allis. However, as Dan Cody noted, the head of Mid American Building Services donated $1,000 to Scott Walker’s gubernatorial campaign right around the time Walker decided to push to privatize County housekeeping jobs.
Dan Cody has more.
